Lyrics

Rockie Lynne

I packed up my truck an' everything I owned
I said my goodbye's and threw away my phone
I didn't know where I was goin', so, I just drove

South of Miami, down through the Keys
Road finally ended when I hit the sea
I sent a postcard home sayin'
"Don't y'all worry 'bout me"

I'm just holding back the ocean
Makin' sure the breeze keeps blowin'
Watchin' over the stars at night
Till the sun shines bright in the morning

I ain't worried 'bout a damn thing
Keep your gold watches and your brass rings
I'm tired of goin' through the motions
I'm just holding back the ocean

String bikini's an' long blond hair
An' you can taste the salt in the air
People laughin' and actin' like
They don't have a prayer

It's twenty-four seven at my new occupation
Don't even earn a dime but I wouldn't trade it
I'm workin' overtime on this permanent vacation

I'm just holding back the ocean
Makin' sure the breeze keeps blowin'
Watchin' over the stars at night
Till the sun shines bright in the morning

I ain't worried 'bout a damn thing
Keep your gold watches and your brass rings
I'm tired of goin' through the motions
I'm just holding back the ocean

It's up to you, what you do with your life
I'll be spendin' mine

I'm just holding back the ocean
Makin' sure the breeze keeps blowin'
Watchin' over the stars at night
Till the sun shines bright in the morning

I ain't worried 'bout a damn thing
Keep your gold watches and your brass rings
I'm tired of goin' through the motions
I'm just holding back the ocean

I'm tired of goin' through the motions
I'm just holding back the ocean
